Studio News and Attachments

  • RIDDICK – Vin Diesel says David Twohy is currently writing the script for a new, smaller entry in the CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK.  This one will be more of a Rambo vs. Aliens in space.
  • THE STRANGERS 2 – Commercial Euro director Laurent Briet is close to closing the deal on directing the sequel, which takes place in a, ugh, trailer park and was written by creator Bryan Bertino.


  • PUPPETMASTER – Charles Band is apparently trying to drum up talk of a remake of PUPPETMASTER in 3-D.  No one cares.
  • IT – Warner Brothers is backing a big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s IT to be written by Dave Kajganich, who wrote THE INVASION and is, according to the article, also writing  a PET SEMETARY remake.

Indie, Foreign and Random News

  • Alex Proyas – Really hates 20th Century Fox.  If you’ll recall, Proyas was knocked about during the production of I, ROBOT at Fox and in a recent interview to promote KNOWING he told CHUD of how he warns other filmmakers away from the studio.
  • Saturn Award Nominees – Looking for a laugh?  Click on over to read the list of nominees.  It’s cool, THE RUINS isn’t up for Best Horror Film, but THE HAPPENING, HELLBOY 2, and THE MUMMY 3 are.
